WHERE TO RETIRE IN STYLE
Americans increasingly are turning to overseas destinations in their search for affordable places to retire. The prospect of living comfortably for less and seeing more of the world pushes many to ponder becoming expats. There are, of course, many factors to consider before making the move abroad, including language, safety, and contact with loved ones back in the United States. But for many nearing or in retirement, cost of living is a top concern. With that in mind, here are some of the cheapest and most appealing international retirement locales, spanning the globe.
To compile this list, Cheapism consulted the top destinations in the 2017 Global Retirement Index from International Living. We looked especially at cost of living and housing in the highest-scoring locales. The other categories included in the index are benefits and discounts, visas and residence, "fitting in," entertainment and amenities, health care, healthy lifestyle, infrastructure, and climate.
